Next this weekend was True Believers by Joe Queenan. I'm a big fan of his movie and culture essays, but this was my first experience with his sports writing. In the book he mostly talks about the types of sports fans and how he became one. Unlike Fever Pitch, which he references more than once, Queenan doesn't attempt to say something larger about fandom in general. He is more interested in one-liners and in detailing his own observations on sports fans. This is a short, funny book, with a few really great laugh-out-loud moments. But don't look to it for serious or deep reflections.
